24. You're right , drugs obtained illegally are by defination illegal drugs
Hospital pharmacies stock cocaine. Using their reasoning then when someone uses cocaine outside the hospital setting they are using a legal drug illegally? Why is that better than using an illegal drug illegally? There is no functional difference between the drug Rush is addicted to and opiates available on the street which were never routed illegally to a pharmacy, none at all with the possible exception that Rush could be more certain that what he was buying was really what it was supposed to be.

They make a distinction when there is no difference. When maids get licenses to prescribe drugs Rush had a prescription drug problem. Since maids dont have that power yet Rush was a garden-variety addict.
